Can I get rid of my child support or alimony payments in bankruptcy?

No. The Bankruptcy Code specifically excepts from discharge any “domestic support obligations.” This means you can’t erase past due payments for child support, maintenance, alimony, or any other family support by filing Chapter 7 or 13. An experienced bankruptcy attorney can help you discharge most or all of your unsecured debt so you can catch up on your domestic support obligations.
